Quicker Baked Potato

Try this method for speeding up the potato baking process (for a better texture than those that you microwave). Pre-heat the oven to 400. Place the potato in boiling water for 10 minutes. Bake for 30 minutes. This will cut the cooking time in half.

 

Deep Fried Ginger Beef


beef

----DEEP FRIED GINGER BEEF----
10 oz flank steak
----BATTER----
1/4 cup water
2 tablespoon vegetable oil
1/2 egg - beaten
1/4 cup cornstarch
2 tablespoon cornstarch
1 1/2 tablespoon flour
1 teaspoon pepper - freshly ground
----GARNISH----
2 oz bell pepper - green
2 oz bell pepper - red
2 oz ginger root - finely chopped
1/2 oz garlic - mashed
----SAUCE----
1/4 cup water
2 tablespoon soy sauce
1 1/2 tablespoon mushroom soy sauce
1 tablespoon white vinegar
1 tablespoon honey
1/2 tablespoon cooking wine
1/4 cup sugar
1/4 tablespoon powdered chili
10 cup cooking oil
3 tablespoon cooking oil

Cutting against the grain, slice flank steak into strips about 2 inches long by 1/4 inch wide. (slightly frozen meat makes this task easier -- FHT). Combine batter ingredients and mix with steak slices; toss to coat and set aside. Cut up green and red peppers into same size strips and mix with garlic and ginger. Combine sauce ingredients and set aside. To cook Ginger Fried Beef, put 10 cups of cooking oil into a deep fryer or pot and preheat to 250 F. Fry coated meat mixture, a few pieces at a time, until crispy, about seven to ten minutes. Set meat aside on paper towel to drain and keep oil at the same temperature for second stage frying. Put 3 Tbsp cooking oil in wok and heat. Add green and red pepper mixture and stir-fry over high heat 15 to 20 seconds. Add sauce mixture and cook another 15 to 20 seconds until somewhat thickened. Cooking times may be a little longer on a conventional stove. Deep fry beef a second time for one minute. Remove from oil and add to stir fry; toss lightly to coat thoroughly and serve.
